Breakfast


We went back to the Palm Harbor Bistro this morning to check out their breakfast menu.  Loren got the Empire skillet and I went for a 2-2-2 Your Way.

The Empire skillet had sausage, bacon, onions, mushrooms & cheese on top of fried potatoes plus 2 eggs and toast.  There was plenty of food on the plate.  I really their scrambled eggs.  They were light and fluffy.

For my 2-2-2, I got pancakes, eggs over easy and bacon with hash browns.   It was good, but I’d go for the scrambled eggs next time.  Total bill was $20.

We’ve driven by the Palm Harbor Bistro on Hwy 19 a bunch of times and decided to stop in for dinner tonight.  There weren’t a lot of people there for dinner.  It seems more of a breakfast & lunch place.  Loren ordered the Crispy Chicken Salad and I went for the Hangover Burger.

 

The fried chicken on the salad was very tender and tasty.  You can tell it was properly marinated to make it juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside.  The hangover burger had bacon, egg & cheese on it.  The burger was a perfect medium and the bacon was cooked well and the over easy egg oozed just the way it should.  I also got the homemade french fries which were pretty tasty as well.  Everyone was very friendly in the restaurant and the food was good.  They have a big menu and we’ll be back again.  Total bill with a drink was $24.

We went over to Thirsty Marlin for dinner tonight.  Loren was craving grouper and this plate of fried grouper cheeks hit the spot.

The fish had a good crunchy batter and came with two sides.  He enjoyed the grouper dipped in the spicy Bahamian sauce.  I decided to try some sushi.  I ordered a Mexican roll, lobster roll and some salmon.

I wasn’t terribly impressed with the sushi.  The batter on the shrimp & lobster was so thick & crunchy that you couldn’t distinguish the two from each other.  There was also way too much rice on the sushi rolls.  They were just too thick.  The lobster roll had fried onions on top which was an odd choice.  They really didn’t add anything worthwhile to the dish.  I don’t think I’d order either of these rolls again.  The salmon was good though.  Total bill with a drink was $52.

It seems most of the Thai restaurants around town have started serving sushi.  We hadn’t been to Amarit Thai in a while and decided to check out what they had to offer tonight.  We started off with some wonton soup, salad, and some crispy spring rolls.

The soup and salad were good.  I like their ginger dressing.  The spring rolls were a bit too crispy in places, but otherwise, they were tasty.  We ordered the tuna tornado, Mexican roll, spicy tuna crunch, some salmon, and a lobster roll.

The sushi was good, but the rice was a bit on the cold side for my taste.  I just don’t think there should be a noticeable difference in temperature.  The rolls were all a good size and we ended up taking some home.  It was a bit on the expensive side though, $78 with a drink.

  • Mee Krob


    We ate dinner at Thai Nana tonight in Palm Harbor because I was craving some Mee Krob.

    It’s a very simple crispy noodle dish with a tamarind sauce on it.  It’s addictive.  A bit on the sweet side and the crunchy noodles just melt in your mouth.  There’s also a couple of shrimp and some chicken it in, but it’s all about the noodles and sauce.  And speaking of noodles and sauce, I ordered some Pad Thai for my dinner.

    Since I don’t like bean sprouts or peanuts, my Pad Thai is always a bit on the plain side, but tasty.  The pad thai sauce was on the sweet side too, so I was a bit overwhelmed with it & the appetizer.  Loren ordered a steak dish.

    He said it was tender, but desperately needed the sauce that came with it.  I think he would have been happier if it had been a dish where everything was mixed and cooked together so all of the flavors could have melded together more.  Service here is really slow.  We had to wait in the front for a while before someone came to seat us and it seemed like they were understaffed for the number of customers.  Total bill with a drink was $36.
